To Realize ...

To realize the value of ten years: Ask a newly divorced couple.

To realize the value of four years: Ask a graduate.

To realize the value of one year: Ask a student who has failed a final exam.

To realize the value of nine months: Ask a mother who gave birth to a still born.

To realize the value of one month: Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of one week: Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of one hour: Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of one minute: Ask a person who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize the value of one second: Ask a person who has survived an accident.

To realize the value of one millisecond : Ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.

Time waits for no one. Treasure every moment you have.You will treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special.

To realize the value of a friend : Lose one.

Thanks! Jan 23, 2003

As a mother of premature triplets I can certainly appreciate your message. When I was 6 month pregnant I remember the US technician saying: \"From now on, every day in your womb is a miracle for your babies. Every day counts.\"

Thanks JL! Jan 23, 2003

You are both very correct:

Every minute of every day counts...

Thank you for reminding us.
